3 simple ways to silence your inner bitch

If you've clicked on this post you know who I'm talking about... We all have one. For some of us she's louder than for others. And for some of us she might be an inner champion rather than an inner bitch. But she's always there. That inner voice who tells us whether...

How to feel sexy in summer when you hate your post baby body

  Summer is well and truly here. Skirts are on, legs are out and strappy tops are in. Which is great... IF you feel comfortable in your body and have no worries about showing it off. But what happens when you actually don't like your body. When the thought of showing...

How to overcome criticism about your body, diet or health

Sadly, no one goes through life without facing criticism over something at some point. We've all been there. All had those 'well meaning' sarcastic remarks or outright insults said to us. And all probably walked away feeling really hurt (possibly with lasting scars...

Why I hate people who use healthy to mean weight loss

Recently on Facebook I was invited to join a group called "healthy mums". Great I thought, I'm a big fan of being healthy (with a little bit of indulgence now and again). And also because of the work I do I'm always nosy about things like Facebook groups and how mums...

3 excellent reasons to keep a journal to help you love your body

I’m a big fan of journaling but I'll admit I came late to the game. I started when I was going through psychotherapy training in 2016. We had to keep a weekly journal to evidence our personal growth. I thought it was a silly idea (after all we were just writing things...

An open letter to my post baby body

  To my post baby body,   When I look at you I want to cry. You look unrecognisable from what you were before I had children. You’ve changed in so many ways (and not for the better). You look so different from the way you used to. I hardly see the body I had before...

Why you shouldn’t worry about losing the baby weight

Soooo much pressure to lose the baby weight! It's every where. And even if you are immune to social media or a total hermit then you probably still have lots of lovely pre-maternity clothes that you'd quite like to get back into. You can read my thoughts on the...

Why the pressure to lose the baby weight makes me so mad

I don't know about you but I've just about had enough of the pressure there is on mums (old and new) to get back to a 'pre-baby' state (read my previous post on why it's time to get rid of the pressure to lose the baby weight). It seems to be that you are only good...

5 things that pressure mums to hate their post-baby body

If you've seen some of my other posts on this topic you'll know that I'm all about the body positive and learning to love your post-baby body (read this post on why you shouldn't worry about losing the baby weight). I hate the pressure on mums to lose the baby weight...

Why it’s so hard to lose the baby weight

We've all seen photos of celebrities who have 'bounced' back almost immediately after having a baby. We probably also know some women ourselves who seemed to just lose the baby weight effortlessly. But, if you're anything like me, it's not effortless. Or easy. Or...

5 ways to love your post baby body just as it is

As you might have noticed from other posts, I really hate the idea that mums need to lose the baby weight in order to feel good about themselves (read why the pressure to lose the baby weight makes me so mad). Why is it that we see our post baby body as such a bad...

It’s time to get rid of the pressure to lose the baby weight

I'm on a bit of a mission at the moment. For various reasons I've decided that the pressure to lose the baby weight is ridiculous, outdated and unfair on new mums. We have enough to worry about after a baby. Important worries include are they feeding enough? Are they...

Why I refuse to lose the baby weight so I can just enjoy being me

I've lost count of how many articles I read before baby was born about how to lose the baby weight. I was adamant that the minute he came out I'd be back on to the healthy eating (after developing a serious coke habit - cans obviously - and eating my body weight in...
